A while ago i contacted Chris Dekerf and told him that i really liked my Team SST i then had but i was a bit dissapointed the way the bike rode when i was descending. He told me to have a look at the implant because that is a bike that can be set up to climb just as well as the team SST but it descends so much better. So this bike is the best of both worlds.

If you find some spare cash, i would invest that in a dropper seatpost.


I can see how a dropper post would improve my riding experience but don't think I'll have the cash anytime soon!

Now I need to have a go on your Ti Implant and see what I'm missing :D

That paint job is amazing. The whole bike looks nice.

It's tough coming back to cycling after a few years off isn't it? I was so fast and slow when I finished the SX.

A very tidy build indeed.

Welcome to the Dekerf owners club!

I used a dropper post on my Dekerf Singlespeed for the first time yesterday and going downhill has become a lot more fun.

Now, I must get on and build my Implant frame.......
